She also enjoyed flower gardening. She loved vacations and Christmas (she was always a contender for the best gag gifts) and taking cruises with family. Syble was a 3rd grade Sunday School teacher at Fielder Rd Baptist Church in Arlington, where she and Robert were members for many years. She loved playing card games with her friends at the Burleson Senior Center and the Mansfield Senior Center. She will be remembered fondly for her faith, her silly sense of humor, and her undying love for her family.
